Around the world in 8 top geese

Still having the sheer volume of geese on Crossens and Banks in April is fantastic. Some simply superb goosing to be had at the minute and some cracking birds seen with Pete & Mark today. Goose around the world….

Excuse any errors in geography, but you get the idea…………..
